Happy Monday to all! Today we’ll kick off the week with a slightly different approach meaning this day isn’t about chic interiors, but bits of fashionable jewelry – 31 Bits to be more precise. 31 Bits is a brand selling handmade jewelry that comes all the way from Uganda! The idea came up to Kallie Dovel in 2007, coming to a life in 2008 and blooming ever since. The team behind 31 Bits works on a regular basis with a group of women from Uganda who create necklaces, bracelets and more from recycled paper and it all looks fabulous! What impressed me a lot is that 31 Bits offers several educational programs to those women – English lessons, finance training, health education etc. – worth being admired, don’t you think?
Hi everyone! I hope you had a relaxing weekend and you fueled up for another week! The traditional Serbian Monday is here and today I have for you a talented girl, creator of beautiful and oh, so feminine jewelry – Sonja and her brand Shtirak Design by Sonja! I had the link to her Facebook page bookmarked for a way too long time and now the time has finally come to share her work with you all! Needless to mention how much I love everything, but I’m digging very much the delicate earrings she’s creating – pretty ribbons and buttons, amazing colors – what else a girl can ask? Oh and everything is handmade, how about that?
Well hello again. After this morning’s post I feel like I have all my ducks in a row, so we can move on :). I know that the traditional Serbian Monday isn’t that traditional anymore (I skipped it a few times), but today I have another feature for you: a local brand called manufaktura cdR, owned by Dragana Romic. Dragana sent me an email presenting her work, so I couldn’t avoid sharing it with you. That’s what Dragana says: “My brand is called manufaktura cdR where R stands for original, recycle and redesign. I am making jewelry out of materials that keep certain information, mostly out of paper, filmstrips, diapositives, negatives etc.” and I really think her jewelry is like a breathe of fresh air, a modern approach to the well-known earrings or headbands. Not to mention the fact the jewelry is made of recycled paper, filmstrips and more, talk about earth-friendly designs.
Hello! How is everyone? Today as a Serbian made feature I have a fellow blogger and her friend who create absolutely stunning funky, modern jewelry from plexiglass – please meet Marina (see her blog here) and Anja, creative minds behind RINGeRAJA! Last week I got my twitter necklace made by RINGeRAJA and I LOVE it, seriously, not taking it out! The lovely girls are working on their site and on the variety of items they’ll be selling, so you can see this post as a sneak peek of the future strikingly famous RINGeRAJA! Here are some of their designs:
Hello, creamylife-ers! How was your weekend? Are you ready for a new week? I sure am! Will kick off this week with a Serbian talent, Iva Novičić behind Iva did it.! Iva is a young lady, whose passion is handmade and jewelry, so she put these two together and started creating handmade jewelry, which is being sold in Supermarket Concept Store (I know I’ve mentioned this store like a thousand times, but it’s really fabulous, so don’t blame me, please!). Iva has a beautiful collection of earrings, necklaces, pendants and bracelets which is sure to satisfy everyone, big or small! I personally love how Iva uses colors within her creations: vibrant hues, mixed muted colors or juicy brights – she does it all good! Here are a few of her pieces, the rest you can check on her Facebook page. Locals, if you’d like to purchase any of this jewelry, look for Iva did it. in Supermarket or contact Iva by mail, which can be found on her page.
Hello all! I’ve been thinking lately that I didn’t show some Etsy love here on creamylife, but this doesn’t mean that I stopped checking regularly Etsy shops, being inspired by the lovely handmade items and amazed by the huge talents out there. So now is the perfect moment to do it, even more because the owner of an adorable shop contacted me and kindly suggested that I take a look at her Etsy wonderland, Floreal shop. Ruchi does pretty jewelry from polymer clay, mixing and matching colors and shapes to create as she says “wearable art”. Although Ruchi is not a professional jeweler, she designs fabulous earrings, necklaces, brooches and more which are so much fun, but what’s the most important her jewelry is looking amazing (and she has couple necklaces that are PERFECT for fall wardrobe, you’ll see below)!
Hi, lovelies! How are you doing? I hope your Monday is going well. Please excuse my late blog post, I’ve been busy with my upcoming trip, organizing, cleaning and packing is what I’ve been doing all day today! Nonetheless, I didn’t forget about the Serbian Monday, which means you’ll get to meet another Serbian designer, who loves everything handmade and is creating pieces of jewelry which will make you be heals-over-head! Danijela Momić (pronounce Momich) was so kindly to let me post her work on creamylife and needless to mention how in love I am with all the handmade rings, earrings, necklaces and more! I mean, her talent is unbelievably huge and I couldn’t be more thrilled to share with you these beauties! Take a look:
